A pitch black beer, that let no lights pass in. A toffee brown foamy head, and an oily body. Wee tiny bit small bubbles are present, they are so small you cant see them.

Smell of dark chocolate, hops, caramel and some fruity flavours that are shy at best.

Taste is very bitter, a great hoppish finish that beer has, some dark chocolate flavours and roasted malts are also present. It is quite different, but even me a hophead, I do thing the imbalance between the hops and the rest of the beer is not very pleasurable for long. Not a bad beer, just it doesnt go down smoothly compared to well balanced american stout.

Pitch black pour with a creamy two finger beige head with good retention and great lacing. The nose is huge and really lives up to the name. Tons of cocoa and dark chocolate along with hints of milk chocolate, oats, and vanilla. The taste follows suit with the chocolate again dominating, but with a distinct bitterness. Hints of cocoa, caramel, leather, vanilla, oats, and roasty coffee. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy with medium carbonation and a dry, bittersweet finish. Overall, this surprised me as I was expecting a sweet and syrupy artificial mess, but instead got a much more natural tasting chocolate stout.

Going into this, I can tell this is going to be a good beer. Wow, the smell definitely gives off a coco aroma. Pours a solid, heavy brown head. Collapses down into the glass with depressions forming as the head dissipates. Pours a dark black.

First sip gives a sharp cocoa taste, closing with a slightly sweeter note. The aftertaste takes a bit of getting used to. Not to say that it isn't unpleasant, it's actually quite nice. But it can be a bit intimidating at first.

Body is very fulfilling. Has a great feel in the mouth. Carbonation is just enough, not too bubbly, not too flat. Everything just seems to click with this beer. It is everything that it promises and more. I've learned to respect Rogue beers, and this beer does everything to re-enforce that view, and more.
